The Light Years
Playwrights Horizons World Premiere
February 17, 2017 - April 2, 2017
Behold The Spectatorium: an audacious, visionary 12,000-seat theater designed for the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 by Steele MacKaye, the now-forgotten theatrical impresario around whom this haunted, 40-year love story spins. The Light Years is an epic, intimate tale of two families struggling to meet their future, and a spectacular tribute to man's indomitable spirit of invention.
The Light Years has been developed in part at the 2011 and 2012 Sundance Institute Theatre Labs and at New York Stage and Film and is supported by a grants from The Greenwall Foundation and Jerome Foundation.
